Psalm 119 is the most extensive affirmation of the authority and sufficiency of Scripture! Expanding on the teaching of Psalm 1, it is the "Mount Everest" of all the psalter. In the opening stanza of Psalm 119, the writer affirms, â€śThou hast commanded us to keep thy precepts diligently" (v. 4). As God calls for whole-hearted obedience to His Word, the psalmist records his unwavering response to God's call for whole-hearted obedience: â€śI will keep thy statutesâ€ť (v. 8). This is no haphazard, indifferent, nonchalant commitment; rather it is a firm and uncompromising resolve to obey God's will. As we read, study, and hear God's Word preached, let us submit to its authority and â€śwalk in the law of the LORDâ€ť (v. 1). May we say with Luther, â€śI am well satisfied with the gift of the Holy Scriptures, which gives me abundant instruction and all that I need to know both for this life and for that which is to come.â€ť
Broadcasters on SermonAudio are constantly exploring and explaining the treasures of God's Word. We often hear from them about how God is using this site to equip God's people and expand their outreach. Here's a few testimonials we have received recently.
But first, some other encouragements!
One local church pastor and broadcaster on SermonAudio related to us that a few years ago his church body was going through a particularly low point. As he was preaching through the book of Acts, he preached a message that was uploaded to the site. Over the next several months that particularly sermon was accessed 3000 times in a closed country on the other side of the world. As the pastor and other elders and church staff learned of this impact, it encouraged them to see God still using them even in the midst of other struggles. -- Anonymous

Encouraging broadcaster feedback..
Below is some of the feedback from broadcasters we've received just this past week. We encourage you to contact them and tell them that you saw them here!
Michael Myers, Heritage Presbyterian Church www.sermonaudio.com/heritagerpc"â€™m really grateful for your ministry personally. SA had a role in my calling to gospel ministry and where I am today. When I was a sophomore in college, I was assigned to work on a baseball field for 8 hours a week. I would load up sermons from various pastors and listen to them all day long when I was doing my job--men like Bill Shisko and Sinclair Ferguson I did this every week at school for two semesters. God used this time and the ministry of godly men on your site to do a deep work in my heart. Today, as a pastor and a broadcaster on your site, I still access SermonAudio a ton! Thanks for the ministry you provide! It made a difference in my life."
Pastor David Lipsey, Heritage Reformed Congregation www.sermonaudio.com/psalm27"SermonAudio has been helpful to our church in many ways. We have contact with several people, such as a couple in Newfoundland, who regularly listen to our messages for spiritual nourishment because there is no gospel-preaching church in their area. As I have pastored both in America and in Canada, one thing that has interested me is that in both countries there are wide swaths of area where there is no doctrinally sound church available. We know that many people from different countries watch our livestream on your site every week. The young people and singles in our church really appreciate this site. They are constantly downloading sermons and listening to them on their devices. There is actually nothing quite like what you offer."
Jim Harris, Heritage Bible Church www.sermonaudio.com/heritagebible"We are just very pleased with SermonAudio and what you offer us. Everything just percolates along very well and we know it has a far reach around the world. Every week at our services we have a slide in our announcement feed that reminds people they can listen to sermons on your site. At times I have made a slide with a world map that shows everywhere someone has listened to our sermons on SermonAudio and it so encouraging to our people. We have always been very happy with our partnership with you."
Jason Parker, High Country Baptist Church www.sermonaudio.com/highcountry"One of the ways in which our partnership with SermonAudio has been especially helpful to us is that several people who have visited or have joined our church first found out about us on SermonAudio. Before they ever came to a service, they listened to some messages and had a feel for the kind of church we were. This has been a wonderful encouragement to us."
We would encourage you to read through more testimonials we've received over the years from both listeners and broadcasters alike.
